Ringgold New Horizons Band

Ringgold New Horizons Band

The Ringgold New Horizons Band was established in the fall of 2012 as a component of the music education and outreach program of the Ringgold Band. The goal of the Ringgold New Horizons band is to celebrate and share the joy and proven health benefits of recreational music making with the senior citizens of Berks County and beyond.

As a member of the Ringgold New Horizons Band, senior citizens are encouraged to dig their old instruments out of their closets or attics or, perhaps, to learn to play altogether. Members are then coached by members of the Ringgold Band in a welcoming and supportive environment.


The Ringgold New Horizons Band is a member of the New Horizons International Music Association, which encourages and supports the formation of senior adult bands and orchestras around the world. New Horizons Music programs provide entry points to music making for adults, including those with no musical experience at all and those who were active in school music programs. Active participation in music allows adults to experience challenging intellectual activity and fulfills the need to be a contributing member of a group.
